Always keeping their products updated, Hyundai is trend setter for treating India as good as developed markets. Fresh designs and interior quality are not afar from benchmarks.

 
Creta

Base Price:
₹ 8,87,337
Rating 7/10
Creta stuck a chord with Indian customer expectations, offering a daily usability with SUV presence. It's currently the segment champion, enjoying even the waiting lists. Strong performance from both the 1.6L engines further help Creta maintain its dominance. The higher variants are pricey while lower ones are under-powered and not feature rich. The SUV-ish looks along with almost car like behavior helps Creta over its competitors.
Verdict
Elantra

Base Price:
₹ 14,51,075
Rating 7.3/10
In its 6th iteration now, the resurrected Elantra can shake its segment given smart pricing. Its sharper styling makes it look confident. grown up and taut with splendid interior finish. Diesel unit could have been larger and rear seats are a bit low. Stiffer chassis translates to better dynamics than before.
Verdict
Elite i20

Base Price:
₹ 5,49,350
Rating 7/10
Elite i20 has moved the game further ahead in the premium hatchback segment again. Facing stiff competition from Maruti Suzuki Baleno, it still holds a its own pretty well. Fit and finish, NVH levels are top notch and so is the interior quality. Rear head-room suffers due to sloping roof and ride is a bit unsettled over any surface. That said, the 1.4 diesel is the pick of the lot.
Verdict
Eon

Base Price:
₹ 3,10,789
Rating 6.2/10
Hyundai's take on Maruti Alto 800, Eon simply could not live up to the expectations. The initial years saw a few issues like vibration in gear lever, etc. but it was quickly sorted out. Currently, it's also available in 1.0L engine. Eon does most of the things, but a few safety features would help it sustain against recent stiff competition.
Verdict
Grand i10

Base Price:
₹ 5,31,206
Rating 6.6/10
Grand i10 is another Hyundai success story in India. With good NVH levels and interior quality, the cabin ambiance is nice. Diesel engine lacks grunt and is more suited to city driving than on highways where it quickly runs out of breath. Ride is not settled and handling is inconsistent. There's good cabin space though.
Verdict
i10

Base Price:
₹ 4,29,726
Rating 5.9/10
i10 was the original replacement for Santro, but Hyundai kept both the products alive in India. It's now availabe in only one engine option and ABS, Airbags are sorely missed. Offers good interiors for the price, but for slightly more price, Grand i10 could be a better fetch.
Verdict
i20 Active

Base Price:
₹ 6,59,721
Rating 6.9/10
Basically under the skin, i20 Active is an i20 with added body kit. Projector lights with LED DRLs are a welcome addition, and the added ground clearance helps it stance.

Tucson

Verdict
Verna

Base Price:
₹ 7,87,876
Rating 6.9/10
Verna, when launched, was a smashing car. Now, it does feel aged although Hyundai has mad few efforts to keep it in the race via updates. The 1.6L engines are strong performers and in particular the diesel's refinement is better than its immediate competition. However, the ride is average and rear seat is too low.
Verdict
Xcent

Base Price:
₹ 5,30,929
Rating 6.7/10
Xcent is a compact sedan based on Grand i10 and it has more or less the same traits. The boot is practical and usefully large, but the diesel engine's weak nature is further accentuated in larger car. Rear seat space is not bad. Clocking consistent numbers, but couldn't be as big a success in its segment as Grand i10 in its.
